WITH MEMBERS OF THE UNITED NATIONS SPLIT ON HOW TO HANDLE SADDAM HUESSIN IT LOOKS LIKE PRESIDENT BUSH DOESN'T WANT TO WAIT ANY LONGER. CBS NEWS HAS LEARNED THE PRESIDENT WILL SEND A RESOLUTION TO CONGRESS TODAY ASKING FOR MAXIMUM FLEXIBILITY TO DEAL WITH THE IRAQI LEADER. WHAT HE WANTS IS APPROVAL FOR THE USE OF MILITARY FORCE.

(SOT- President Bush)

Its an important signal for the world to see that this country is united in our resolve with threats that we face
THE ADMINISTRATION STARTED MAKING ITS CASE WEDNESDAY. ON CAPITOL HILL DEFENSE SECRETARY DONALD RUMSFELD URGED LAWMAKERS TO AUTHORIZE POSSIBLE MILITARY ACTION EVEN BEFORE THE U-N SECURITY COUNCIL COMES TO A DECISION.

(SOT-Donald Rumsfeld/Secretary of Defense)

delaying a vote in congress would send the wrong message, in my view as were asking the international community to take a stand
AS PART OF THAT STAND THE U-S IS ALSO TRYING TO DRAFT A RESOLUTION AT THE UNITED NATIONS THAT WOULD ALLOW THE USE OF FORCE IF BAGDAD FAILS TO COMPLY WITH U-N DEMANDS. BUT SEVERAL COUNTRIES INCLUDING RUSSIA AND CHINA AREN'T GOING ALONG. HOWEVER, THE WHITE HOUSE BELIEVES THAT WILL CHANGE.

(SOT-Ari Fleischer/Press Secretary)

Were confident that, at the time that vote takes place, that the world agree. What choice does the world have?
STANDUP: THE LEGISLATION HERE AT HOME IS EXPECTED TO BE APPROVED OVERWHEMINGLY. CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS HAVE PROMISED A VOTE BY THE NOVEMBER ELECTIONS. BUT WITH PRESIDENT BUSH SENDING THE RESOLUTION TODAY THAT VOTE COULD COME MUCH SOONER. MELISSA MCDERMOTT, CBS NEWS, NEW YORK.

Since June, the county's been pumping water that leaks out of the dam at Spring Hollow reservoir back into the lake. Two pumps collect about one day's worth of water every two weeks. The County's also digging several test wells in between the dam and treatment facility. IF significant water is found, Utility Director Gary Robertson says he hopes it can be pumped into the treatment facility, treated, and then sent directly to customers. Together, Roanoke County and City pull 10 to 11 million gallons of water a day from the reservoir.
